Carly Pearce will be inducted into the Kentucky Music Hall of Fame's class of 2022. The country star, who is a Kentucky native, will be honored by her home state at the induction ceremony to be held in Renfro Valley on October 28.

"Kentucky is where I learned to love country music and the incredibly talented musicians who wove their stories and texture throughout the genre," Carly said in a statement. "From straight-up sass of The Judds and Patty Loveless or truly understanding Loretta Lynn's heartache, to the bluegrass tinge of Ricky Skaggs and Bill Monroe, their influences have driven my music."

"I am so excited and grateful to be inducted into the Kentucky Music Hall of Fame this fall," she added.

Grand Ole Opry background vocalist Norah Lee Allen, Steel Guitar Hall of Famer Tommy White and songwriter Marty Brown are the other nominees in the Kentucky Music Hall of Fame's class of 2022.

Bluegrass songwriter Pete Goble and master guitarist and legendary producer Paul Yandell will be nominated posthumously.
